Help build The Museum at Dinosaur Junction

Hi all!! Coming out of the most unique summer ever, we had another RECORD BREAKING success!! We entertained families, kids and adults alike from all over the World this summer AND gained an army of new museum patrons  and followers. (more info at www.fossilposse.com) Eagle County Colorado's FIRST DINOSAUR MUSEUM, The Museum at Dinosaur Junction continues to grow with help from people like you! In addition, donations have allowed more and more discoveries of not only dinosaurs but other prehistoric life dating back to over 200 million years old right here in our town; sharks, crocodiles, this summer a 150 million year old Jurassic turtle, and MORE!!

We had an incredible second summer and our official 501C3 Non-Profit status for the museum is about finished!! We continue our journey of improving the quality of adventure and learning in our town for a long-lasting educational and fun experience for all who visit or live here in Eagle County.  

Your donations will also allow us to search for our "forever home", the actual building where our museum will live and also allow us to purchase museum-quality dinosaur skeletons, educational tools, displays, and more to represent the various animals whose ancient remains have been found in our area. Please help us reach our goal! Schools, kids, families, locals, guests will soon be able take trips through Colorado's prehistoric past and see amazing dinosaur fossils, and more from our ancient inhabitants here in our community of Eagle County, Colorado!!

Your donations to date have allowed the museum to grow in an incredibly positive direction and it has been a wonderful journey! In 2020, even with the Covid19 problems, through camp, online teaching, and public shows, we have taught hundreds and hundreds of kids, adults,  families, and visitors all about the prehistoric Colorado and dinosaurs who inhabited this area. In a scientific capacity, your support has allowed Fossil Posse to continue to explore and discover new and exciting fossil treasures to add to the world of science and Paleontology, in fact we will be published for the first time alongside World renowned dinosaur footprint expert, Dr. Martin Lockley, in a paleontological paper on incredible footprints here in Eagle County, Colorado! Last summer we found more than a dozen new footprints; Allosaurs, Sauropods, Ornithopods, and more- some over 3 feet wide, were found in our area alone!!  Working with local schools, resorts, businesses, and families, has given our museum the platform to connect with kids and adults, locals, and guests to our community who are ravenous about dinosaurs and science as a whole. We can always use more help.  Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, and check out our website to see what The Museum at Dinosaur Junction is all about! (www.fossilposse.com)

Please pass this campaign link on to anyone you may know who may want to help get our grass roots museum off to a strong start, or grow Fossil Posse in general, no donation too small- and none too big!! Thank you so much for your consideration!!53323238_1608073436847574_r.jpeg
